I have been working at MicroStrategy full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Work schedules and locations can be flexible.
Coworkers are very helpful - if the person you asked doesn't know the answer, s/he will often help you find someone that does know the answer. Initial product training gives good exposure to the product.

Cons

Company doesn't promote new positions to employees first. The way to know if positions are coming open is to monitor LinkedIn.
Cross country travel isn't factored into work schedules.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give existing employees a chance to move up / around. Factor crazy travel times into expected billing.

    I worked at MicroStrategy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Moved forward by hiring industry experts to sell BI to the C-level executives in verticals, but then brought in an SVP in Sales who completely destroyed the positive momentum in new account acquisition.

    Cons

    Getting rid of your Industry solutions division was a big mistake. Horrible senior mismanagement...lack of vision, inability to stay focused and on course.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to your business partners to get an understanding on why and how they retain their most valuable senior executives.
